Victor Goldman is ten years old; that makes him practically a grownup, right? At any rate, he’s not a little kid anymore. His dad says he’s growing too fast.
“Don’t be a no-hoper like me, Biks, promise me you’ll make something of yourself. Okay?”
Bikky nods. “Sure, dad. I’m gonna play pro basketball.”
“That’s my boy!”
A week later, his dad is dead, and suddenly Bikky doesn’t feel so big. His dad was his only family; now he’s alone in the world. Grownups don’t cry, but as tears fall, he thinks maybe he’ll be a kid a little while longer.
